The Local Governing Body comprise volunteers who undertake a vital role to ensure the effective governance of your local school, to provide high quality education and outcomes for our children.  To enable the Governing Body to be fully effective you will provide advice and guidance and administrative and organisational support; to the Chair and the Local Governing Body to ensure their understanding and compliance within a legal and regulatory framework for schools.  

We do not necessarily expect you to have worked as a Clerk to a Governing Body previously,.  You will receive access to a wealth of resources to enable you to inform and provide advice and guidance to the local governing body.  In addition, there is a national training programme for Clerks that leads to a National Certificate you can access. 

You will have some flexibility in your working hours, as you only need to attend school for the scheduled meetings; typically there will be up to 10 local governing body meetings per year. Meeting times will vary between our schools, but are normally late afternoon/early evening.  This means you may be interested in working as a Clerk in more than one of our schools.

We currently have opportunities in portsmouth and so to find out more about what it means to be a Clerk to a local governing body, and at the same time making a difference to your local community please call the HR team on (01243) 793421 or email  You will also find details about the role to the left of this advert, together with an application form.  Complleted applications should be sent to University of Chichester Academy Trust, HR Department, Upper Bognor Road, Bognor Regis.  PO21 1HR, or email

The closing date has been left open as we have a number of vacancies and will review applications as submitted.  To avoid disappointment we recommend an early submission.  We are also interested in hearing from you if you are unable to commit to becoming a permanent Clerk, but would be interested in servicing meetings on an ad hoc basis if a Clerk is unable to attend.   

As an employee of the University of Chichester Multi-Academy Trust you will receive competitive pay, eligibility to the Local Government Pension Scheme, and access to other benefits such as a discount card for goods, services, travel and products, and opportunities for personal and career development should you wish.
